Re: Cooper; 12/24/2020

Doc... how about an Easter story since we got our last at Xmas? You must have some Cooper's World story snippet ready to share!

Stay well and stay writing!

Re: Building a Bug Out Cart for fun and profit

It would seem like with a spare motorcycle tire, a couple of pallets, a piece of pipe for an axle that you could field expedient one of the Chinese wheelbarrows and give on a try. Probably not the best for moving dirt, but pretty good for moving bagged camping type gear

Re: Cooper; 12/24/2020

Another great chapter! I really like the filling out of the El Ranchero and neighborhood "feel". No lone wolf will really make it by themselves.....


Seems like 2021 would start off well with another Cooper World chapter!

Re: Cooper; new stuff added 12/24/2018

Very good to hear! Both the Cooper World stories and the Mountain are much better than most of the PAW crap that I read from Amazon. I also think if you could get it published that you would be amazed at the growing fan base you would get! I really like the "after event lifestyle" descriptions and t...

Best Christmas Eve morning read ever...……. I really like the fleshed out characters of Isaac and Dixie. I could really get a feel for the village of Conley and think it would be a good place for Cooper to trade some of the medical gear from Halloween time and meet up with Isaac again...… the two Pon...

I really wonder why you have not published the Cooper World stories. They really are better than 95% of what is currently being offered in the market. But I am a fan of "The Mountain" Story and think you should bring that one over to this site and maybe finish it...… Really enjoyed the origin of how...

Doc..... you did mention that you were working on three different Cooper related stories and finished the above great adventure first and posted it.

The Cooper world is awesome...… any update on either of the other two stories? Really looking forward to them!

Re: Cooper; new stuff added 08/29/2018

Awesome sub story in the greater Cooper world. I like how the "bad guys" don't have to be nomadic apocalyptic crime lords out to take over entire towns and are more believable as they reflect the type of characters I would expect in the story line being displayed... again just awesome. I am looking ...

Re: Single Stack 9 mm Striker mid to full size less than $40

Beretta Nano. Great pistol. I really like the one I have. Slightly heavier than my buddy's Glock 43, but seems to shoot better as it absorbs the recoil better. Easy to find under $400 and comes with 2 magazines. I like the smooth profile and simplicity of this pistol. Seems to come out of my pocket ...

Airship story - The Flying Cloud

In response to TacAir's two recent posts that gave me two new sites to displace considerable time to, I offer a similar site of text and animation for a story of Airships, post WWI timeframe and a very interesting story... set aside some time when you start this story:
